Previous house guests have included Queen Elizabeth I, King Charles II and Queen Anne, whose main state room is now the Queen Anne Ceremony Room. The house and grounds are a photographers dream with a never-ending backdrop of fabulous photographic opportunities. Whether it’s using the 300-year-old oak staircase.
